Updates Now Live to “Payments and Invoices” Section within GoGrid Portal

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011 by

Yesterday we pushed out some enhancements to the Billing section of the GoGrid customer portal. As we mentioned previously, recently we have been focusing on the “billing experience”. In March, we provided three important updates to Billing which included: Monthly Invoices, Account Plan Changes and Usage reporting. Yesterday, we rolled out some enhancements and updates to the Billing section, specifically, the “Payments and Invoices” area.

To access this updated functionality, simply navigate to: My Account > Billing. Once there, you can click on the “Payments and Invoices” section within the Billing Menu:

Menu_item

From there, you will see the latest 10 Payments and 10 Invoices. (Note that the pictures used in this post are from an Employee account on GoGrid and may not reflect all possible scenarios that a GoGrid customer might see.)

The Items are sorted by Date.

Friday, March 11th, 2011 by

Part of a new Engineering and Product initiative at GoGrid is the fact that we will be providing more frequent updates to our Cloud Infrastructure Services. These updates may take the form of new or updated features, bug fixes, or back-end enhancements. Our goal is to provide these updates and feature releases on a monthly basis (more information on our new agile software engineering process will be coming) so that we can answer customer requests and needs on an extremely timely basis as well as introduce revolutionary services to the Cloud Infrastructure marketplace.

Today (March 11, 2011), we released our March 2011 update (code name “Long Beach”). The major features and updates are listed below:

  • Enhancement to the MyGSI Feature
  • Usage Report
  • Billing Improvements
  • Ubuntu 10.04 Cloud Server Support
  • Debian 5.0 Cloud Server Support

Please read on for details on each of the items listed above.

MyGSI Updates

About a year ago, we introduced a new feature called MyGSIs – customized GoGrid Server Images – and how easy it was to create and save a Server Image. Server images are helpful for horizontal scaling, re-imaging of servers, disaster recovery, or setting up failover environments. Until this update, we had a pretty straight forward 3-step process: 1) create a Sandbox Image, 2) configure your server, prep it, and run scripts, and 3) save the server to cloud storage.

The GoGrid newsletter went out today. Unfortunately, if you are not already a GoGrid customer, you didn’t receive it…until now! There are a lot of exciting items covered here (a few of which you already know if you subscribe to this blog’s RSS feed including the Edit, Delete and Restore function of MyGSIs). If you aren’t already a GoGrid user, I recommend that you sign up (and here is a quick hint, if you want a $100 GoGrid credit on new account, contact a GoGrid Sales Rep and they can consult with you on your best options for the Cloud).

Video: Edit, Delete & Restore GoGrid’s MyGSIs & Billing Widget Explained

Friday, September 11th, 2009 by

Yesterday we announced new GoGrid functionality which allows you to edit, delete and restore personal server images known as MyGSIs. Since a picture is typically worth a 1,000 words, I compiled a quick screencast that walks you through this new functionality as well as through the changes we made to the Billing Widget.

If you have any questions about this functionality or other things “GoGrid”, please leave a comment on this post. As always, I’m reachable via Twitter (@hightechdad) and email (Michael AT GoGrid DOT com).

Also, be sure to follow us on Twitter (@GoGrid) as well as become a fan of GoGrid on Facebook.

GoGrid Updates MyGSI Features: Edit, Delete & Restore & Other Changes

Thursday, September 10th, 2009 by

Yesterday an update to GoGrid was released with the following enhancements:

  • Edit, Delete & Restore MyGSI Images
  • Updated Billing Widget
  • Updated GoGrid API

On August 11, 2009, we announced the availability of GoGrid 2.0 which included the new personal server images (MyGSI) functionality. Details on that important release are found here. Using MyGSI to manage your server repository or inventory is a great way to not only speed up your workflow in terms of deploying copies of servers quickly and easily, but also save money in the process (by storing your personal server images in GoGrid Cloud Storage for just a few dollars a month).

Edit, Delete & Restore MyGSI Images

As our customers were demanding this feature (MyGSIs), we got it out to market as quickly as possible. This new release now provides you with the ability to Edit, Delete and Restore MyGSIs that are located within the Server Images tab.

Hopefully many of you are already enjoying the MyGSI feature. Here are a few things you should know about the newly pushed functionality. Within the Server Images tab, you should now see a new icon to the far right hand side of the server images that looks like a trash can:
